Today (Tax Day) marks our 5 year anniversary in Peru. Five years ago today we stepped off a plane onto the tarmac of the Lima airport wondering what in the world we had got ourselves into. After getting our bags and clearing customs we spent the night in what was then a very gloomy and dirty Lima airport (it’s amazing how much it has changed in 5 years). We then hopped on a plane to the great city of Arequipa where our fellow missionaries Todd and Rosalinda were waiting to take us and our 9 bags back to their apartment. Now 2 daughters, 2 cities, and 4 moves later we are anticipating our first furlough (whenever the girls paperwork gets finished). In some respects 5 years seems like a long time ago but in other respects it seems like it has flown by. We praise the Lord for the 5 years He has given us here and pray the He gives us many, many more!
